to what the president said today and what speaker john boehner said last week. listen to this. >> you've said that the wealthiest must pay more. would closing loopholes instead of raising rates for them sty y satisfy you? >> i think there are loopholes that should be closed and we should look at how we can make the process of deductions, the filing process easier, simpler, but when it comes to the top 2%, what i'm not going to do is to extend further a tax cut for folks who don't need it. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable and frankly, it couldn't even pass the house. >> well, it feels like a dÉjÀ vu all over again. somebody is going to have to blink or we go over the fiscal cliff. my next guest knows all about fiscal cliff uncertainty and its effect on the individual investor. walter bettinger is ceo of charles schwab. the market certainly feels pessimistic. we are looking at another 200-point decline today. the market is down 5% since the president was re-elected. what are you hearing from clients? >> clients are really concerned. there is pessimism among investors. there's grea

to keep speaker john boehner from setting the ground rules when it comes to negotiations over the fiscal cliff, mix of spending cuts and tax increases that will kick in at the end of the year. after returning to the white house victorious you'll hear the president argue today, as he did so many times on the campaign trail that household income over $250,000 a year should revert to those higher clinton era tax rates. white house aides say his victory is a sign that the american people feel the same way. they have no plans of backing down. they have not said how they plan to handle negotiations on the fiscal cliff. they've really just been regrouping. he met with top aides about it yesterday. capitol hill is telling me that they're waiting to hear how the white house wants to move forward. there's really nothing they can do until they hear from the white house. we got a stark reminder of how high the stakes are. the nonpartisan congressional budget office released a report saying of all those spending cuts and tax increases associated with the fiscal cl
